“Balances laugh-out-loud absurdity with excruciatingly understated tragedy”~Mark Kermode, The Guardian

Aroview: Brilliant, unclassifiable German comedy where a stern, career-focused woman is followed around a series of mundane board meetings and vapid social events by her hilariously eccentric dad, who develops a surreal alter-ego which forces her to confront their differences.

A charming and highly unique black comedy, whose relentlessly awkward, deadpan style is tempered by a genuinely moving portrayal of a father and daughter estranged by generational and cultural divides.
